That Camo GT-R!!

IMG_2224

Welcome to Texas everyone.  A place where we like our beer cold, our women beautiful and feisty, and our trucks wrapped in good ole fashioned camouflage…err…our GT-R’s.  Who wants to go huntin?  This particular Nissan is owned by Jeremy Rohrs of SouthSide Performance (SSP) and it carries with it quite a history for only being a few years old.

This beautiful 2010 Nissan GT-R will certainly turn some heads at a place where “hard parking” is the word of the day, but, that’s not built for that.  It’s built for getting beat on by Jeremy at places like Motorsport Ranch, Texas World Speedway, the Global Time Attack series…anywhere with a road course and a place to change some tires.  This car is set up from the factory with an All-Wheel Drive system that will knock your socks off.  Sometimes, though, Jeremy likes to disable the front drive wheels and play around in just rear wheel drive.  Got a problem with that?  I don’t (lol).

When all the bolt-ons and the computer systems are at harmony with each other this GT-R usually makes in the ballpark of 542 horsepower and 550 lb.ft. of torque.  Seems like enough to have fun with in rear wheel drive and it may leave a tear or two on your face in an all-wheel drive configuration.  Either way though I know that Jeremy pushes this beauty on a regular basis.  Once we agreed to meet up at the old Humble Gas Station he plugged in the address to his Navigation and it gave him a time of about an hour, give or take a few minutes.  He made it to the spot in 27 minutes.  Challenge accepted and challenge murdered.

Too often we forget that these cars we love are machines.  Machines that long for abuse, wear, and tear.  Please remember that every once in a while you need to get out there and beat on your machine.  Whether you are a drift nut, auto-x’er, drag racer, road course fiend, midnight cruiser, etc…just get out there and drive that car!

Can you even see the pictures of the GT-R or do you just see the old Humble Gas Station?  Ok, obligatory camouflage joke out-of-the-way now.  Huge thanks to Jeremy from SSP for hanging out with me for a few hours and also showing me how to properly plasti-dip an Acura NSX that has graced the cover of Modified Mag.  “I feel like I am vandalizing this beautiful car,” Jeremy Rohrs.
